Nat Faxon and Judy Greer star in this comedy — now in its second season — as married couple Russ and Lina Bowman. While not as bright and sunny as other comedies about modern family life, Faxon and Greer are good enough to make you hope for the best for these characters. Great comic support is offered by Brett Gelman, Jenny Slate, Paul Reiser and Sarah Burns, as the Bowmans’ circle of friends. 10:30 p.m. Thursday, July 30, on FX.

Michael Rosenbaum (“Smallville”) stars in this new comedy as Buddy Dobbs, a man on the run who through a strange set of circumstances ends up pretending to be a pastor in a small town. Rosenbaum is appealing in the lead, and the pilot was alternately cute and clever (it also pairs well with “The Jim Gaffigan Show” that precedes it). Sara Rue, Mircea Monroe, Mike Kosinski and David Rasche co-star. 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 29, on TVLand.
PBS’ “Great Performances” series presents a filmed version of Alfred Uhry’s stage play about the relationship between a black chauffeur (James Earl Jones) and an aging Southerner (Angela Lansbury). 10 p.m. Friday, July 17, on KCTS.
Gaffigan stars in this great new comedy, inspired by his real life as a comedian, husband and father. If you are a fan of his stand-up, you’ll love how it has been translated to television. There are lots of funny jokes about food, laziness and the busy lives of modern parents. Tonight’s premiere involves vegan cupcakes, people who don’t like Gaffigan’s comedy, a child’s drawing and a barista who may or may not be Macaulay Culkin. The series also features Ashley Williams, Adam Goldberg and Michael Ian Black. 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 15, on TVLand.
